I've been meaning to come here and drop off some things that I have been working on...and I will...but first I have to get something off of my chest.
I haven't been able to stop thinking about this thing and have been overthinking about the best way to roll it out. I want to shout it to the world but I don't want everyone's attention...if that makes sense.
I am here to announce and offer a unique type of photo experience.
You don't necessarily have to have a reason to get your portrait made. You are reason enough. Just like I don't have to have a reason to create.
This started as a personal project, something I started doing for myself and I love it so much that I want to share it. I share with hopes to cultivate more interest annnnd to make it more sustainable for myself, to be honest. :)
In 2014 I slowly started collaborating with women and making photos just because...
I love all of these images so much but not because of what you see. the experience we share is beautiful and the photos I feel are mementos from the experience.
the experience: i can't really go into too much detail. i'm not trying to sell you. if it resonates, it resonates. every session is different. we will collaborate but you should have no binding expectations. i would like you to give me trust and space to create organically.
I don't want to hear about your thighs, love handles or arms. you will be required to be free. there will be no negative self talk. Once you let go and honor yourself, it will shine through. #nojudgementzone
I'm super excited about this. I'm into making dramatic, colorful, authentic and moody imagery but not just for anyone or any company. It is important to me to provide a service that also serves me. I don't like feeling like hired help. I find that I work best once we connect and I always-always make time for that with these type of sessions.
We don't rush, we leave room to flow, we leave room to talk, we connect.
Self-care is being slung around all over the place as-of-late and I'm not even mad about it. It is super important. I am a mother and an entrepreneur and I have learned the effects of self-neglect the hard way. If self-care is a phrase you're tired of hearing. This type of session isn't for you.
I allow you to be yourself and to celebrate and embrace you.
You walk away feeling full,
You walk away feeling good.
I walk away feeling full,
I walk away feeling good.
Big thank you to all of the women who unintentionally helped me shape this offering and for trusting me and giving me creative freedom. If you hadn't given me feedback and let me know how our shoot made you feel, I probably wouldn't be writing this right now. I want to share that feeling with more women. Where would I be if I hadn't photographed you?
